Did you know Avocados are a weight loss superfood? The heart-healthy monounsaturated fat in avocados accelerates metabolism and increases satiety. Even better, monounsaturated fats can help you lose belly fat.
Isn’t it amazing that a fruit with such a high fat content (a cup of avocado has around 34% fat, equivalent to a quarter-pound burger) could actually help you lose weight. But actually most of the fat in avocados is monounsaturated or the good kind that actually lowers cholesterol levels and helps lose those extra pounds.
Recent studies also show that avocado eaters have higher intakes of fiber, vitamins E and K, magnesium, and potassium, and they weigh less and have smaller waists–without eating fewer calories. Another study concluded that without cutting calories, including avocado in meals helps reduce hunger in overweight adults and lower insulin levels. Adding avocado to you diet is easy!
Add it to omelets, sandwiches, smoothies, or salads! My favorite afternoon snack is Turkey Roll-Ups. Just lay out large pieces of romaine, top with sliced turkey, cover with guacamole, roll it up, and enjoy!
